Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle

Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle

Today is the Feast of St. Andrew the Apostle. Here is a photo of the interior of the church. You can see the sanctuary where St. Maximilian Maria Kolbe was ordained a priest. St. Louis-Marie de Montfort stayed here with the Theatine Fathers when he visited Rome, having walked there from Paris. It was the Theatine, St. Giuseppe Maria Tomasi, who introduced St. Louis-Marie to Pope Clement XI, who made him missionary apostolic. Popes Pius II and Pius III are entombed over two archways.
